1/30/2012 - ... just a little bit...

... off the top, please

Getting a cut at Rudy's Belltown.

And then a double shot in a window and mirror while walking back to work:

1/29/2012 - objects in the mirror...

... are later than they appear...

this may look as though I snapped it at 4a after being woken up by a little girl. The sad truth is that while I may have been woken up at 5.30a (I don't remember now but it certainly wasn't 4), but I actually took this around 9.15a, so there's no excuse for that visible exhaustion ....

1/19/2012 - ice day!

a reflection:

This morning we had freezing rain on top of yesterday's 4+ inches of snow. Which meant a mess of a commute, but as I was taking the water taxi, it just meant a careful walk down to and onto (the ramps were the slickest part of the walk) the boat.

I took this picture as I was walking back to the dock on my way home this afternoon. Lots of snow falling around me. A bonus photo as proof:

The old fishing pier, from Pier 50

and one more, an iphone, hipstamatic shot from work:

before heading out into the cold

1/18/2012 - snow day!

today we had a lot of snow, so much so that schools were closed. i worked from home in the morning, while M took the girls out sledding. then they came in for lunch and a break, and K took this picture:

Daddy, by K

then we went and did more sledding:

me and L, by M

1/17/2012 - things are getting kind of boring....

tuesday -

another from a ride home on the water taxi

i'm realizing several things at this point:
  1. there's a great deal of repetition in these pictures
  2. i'm getting bored
  3. i'm not what i'd call "enjoying" this project
  4. it's only 17 days in....
so i need to come up with ways to make it more interesting (to me, and, theoretically, to the girls).

like maybe coming up with some new approaches (shadows, reflections, timed pictures....)

1/16/2012 - reflecting

another shot in the bathroom mirror.

it may look like morning, but it's 4.16pm. and my face is (apparently) quite cockeyed.

heading home from work

Blue skies, courtesy of clear weather
(general exhaustion, courtesy of a long day)

Monday, January 9, 2012

it was bound to happen...

I failed to take a photo of myself on 1/9/12.

So, instead, I'll substitute one from the family archives:

Olinda, Maui, 1965

This is on property my parents owned, sold later to Mike Waltz so mom could take care of her parents as they got older.

me and (one of) my gal(s)

just another afternoon lying on the kitchen floor....

If you look cute enough, it won't matter what I look like

good morning

how i look when i've been woken up too early on new year's day:

note: i went to bed about 9.30pm, was woken at 11.30p by the fireworks starting, managed to get back to sleep maybe an hour later.... so blame it all on my cold!
